Interactive Cinema Album

Welcome to the Club Scrap Cinema Collection Blog Hop! I'm so glad you've stopped by my blog.  If you would like to return to the start of the hop here is the link.

The Club Scrap Cinema Collection is so beautiful I decided to make an album for myself. I love pockets and flaps so I chose to make a single segment version of Laura Denison's Foto Folio Two. The materials are taken from the Club Scrap Cinema Collection unless otherwise noted. To that I added some embellishments, art work, punches, and of course pictures. 

I worked on most interior pages during a weekend crop, but I forgot to bring my CS Cinema UM stamps (Oh No!). Turns out the CS Cinema cutaparts were able to see me through most of the album. 

For the cover I add flowers, leaves, "Melt It" buttons, and distressed tin embellishments as described in my Club Scrap Greetings to Go Cards' post. In the background you can barely see the Cinema reel stencil that I colored in with a wine marker and silver pen.  The tabs were made with some Crop-a-Dial corner punches and all was antiqued with Distress Stain in Black Soot. Throughout the book I have used the cutaparts numbers to make similar tabs to divide up the pictures. The punch used on the cover is Martha Stewart Deco Fan corner and edge.

Tab one "4th of July" shows our day at the lake. The photo is black and white colored with Distress Ink in various colors.

Tab two "Sunset" features Cinema stars UM Stamps in Lindy's Stamp Gang Hydrangea Blue Moon embossing powder on the black panel. 

Tab Three "Band" includes some art work leftover from my Cinema Cards using Izink with the CS Get the Picture Collection stencil.


Tab Four "Sports" features a movie quote to go with the sepia baseball photo.  The title was printed with CS Cinema Digital Collection art work and font.

On the inside flap, the CS Cinema Lite collection tan letters were colored with Inktense pencils and water activated to get a distressed look. 

Tab Five "Scouts" uses small 1" x 1.25" pictures on a filmstrip cutapart as in the CS Creates post "Four New Ways to Use Cutaparts."

Tab Six "Cats vs Dogs" uses letters colored with back Inktense pencils and a filmstrip cutapart.

Tab Seven "The Grad" includes a dry embossed panel colored with Brushed Pewter Distress Paint using a brayer to color only the embossed locations.

Tab Eight "Friends" features stamped camera images from the Club Scrap Get the Picture UM Stamps made with Picket Fence Distress Paint. The flap uses a Martha Stewart Deco Tassel corner punch for the tin embellishment. Stamped sentiments are from the CS Picnic and Dungarees Collection.

During the weekend crop I said I wish I could use a video to show the interactive nature of this album and a friend said sure you can.  So, she helped me learned how to make a video and edit it. Here is a video flip though on my new YouTube channel "Debby's MIPC."

Thank you for reading and watching. Your next stop is with the talented Janet from Dishing with Janet and the beginning of the hop is at Club Scrap Creates here.

Happy Crafting,
Debby H
